If you even suspect you are bent, call DAN or any medical facility or 911 emergency services IMMEDIATELY.

I was shocked when I read the following garbage from some dude name CalAbDiver: http://www.diver.net/bbs/messages/51107.shtml

" Subclinical Type 1 DCI from NDL diving to the limits of NDL algorithms on air with dive computers can be successfully self-treated with rest and sleep and rehydration. "

YOU CANNOT SELF TREAT DCI.

THIS IS DEADLY INFORMATION THAT IS 100% WRONG AND INCORRECT.

DO NOT FOLLOW THIS DANGEROUS ADVICE.

Would anyone with a mediacal background care to add ?

Wishing the safest diving to everyone !

SteveO
